Students Registration

The typical steps students follow during mcc registration include contacting the master directors for advice on the learning process, course contents and selection of optional courses, following administrative procedures using the UIMP web application and looking for financial support.


Admissions Requirements

For admission to the Master, students must have an official university degree from an institution of
higher education in a country included in the “European Higher Education Area” (EHEA). This degree
must be valid to access Master education in the issuing country. Engineering and Sciences degrees
will be accepted with priority.

Students with an equivalent degree issued by institutions outside the EHEA can be accepted without
an explicit, official recognition of qualification after proving the equivalence of the education level and that the given degree gives access to Master education in the country of the issuing institution. The admission of these students does not mean that their degree is recognized in any context other than the admission to the Master.

The official language for tuition during the Master is English, but single-student or small-group activities such as supervised work or tutorship can be done in any other language agreed to by the teacher and the student. Students must be fluent in speaking, reading and writing in English to be accepted. The Master’s Thesis must be prepared and presented in English.

The standards for student acceptance include: degree, student record, participation in additional
education programmes, previous scientific and technical training and experience as well as reference
letters from scientists with experience in Crystallography/Crystallization.

Assessment and rules of attendance

A continuous assessment of student progress will be carried out through examinations after each
course. The final grade assigned to each student will include these partial grades and the assesment
of the presentation and discussion of their Master’s Thesis.

Students have a maximum of two examination sittings per year to pass each course and must
complete all the credits in the programme within two years.

Issuing of Degrees

At the end of the course successful students will be awarded the official Master degree in
Crystallography and Crystallization issued by the Chancellor of the UIMP.
